Obama's Racist, Anti-American Mentor

By Joseph Kellard

On Friday night (March 14), I turned on The O’Reilly Factor on Fox News, and Bill O’Reilly was interviewing two women who were defending Barak Obama’s long-time mentor and “spiritual leader,” Reverend Jeremiah Wright.

Wright has stated that 9/11 was the “chickens coming home to roost” for America’s supposedly aggressive foreign policy (particularly for its support of Israel over the Palestinians). A self-described “black liberation theologian,” Wright has also made the following statements during his sermons at the United Trinity Church of Christ:

“We cannot see that what we are doing is what Al Qada is doing under a different colored flag.”

“Fighting for peace is like raping for virginity.”

“God damn America for killing innocent people. God damn America for treating us citizens as less than human.”

“The government lied about inventing the AIDS virus as a means of genocide against people of color.”

“The government lied about the Tuskegee experiment. They purposely infected African American men with syphilis.”

The following is my email to O’Reilly (with a reference to an invitation, by one of his guests, to visit Wright at his church), who can be contacted at (

Mr. O’Reilly,

Rev. Wright is essentially a racist and viciously anti-American. I see that you understand this, and I hope you have the courage to call him such to all of his apologists—and Wright himself, when and if you meet him.
